Singer Jess Glynne Claims She Wasn't Let Into A Restaurant Due To 'Pure Discrimination' For Wearing A Hoodie

It's no surprise to anyone that nice restaurants, especially in Europe, have dress codes. It's to maintain the VIBE, ya know?! And while I don't totally agree with restaurant dress codes, I do love an excuse to get GLAM for my steak dinner.

However, singer Jess Glynne has a very different thought process about bougie England restaurants and their dress codes, and many are calling her problematic AF because of it!

Jess Glynne took to social media, and her nearly 1 million Insta followers, to bash London hotspot Sexy Fish for not allowing her to dine inside the restaurant.

On The Sexy Fish website, the dress code is described in detail, "We request that guests do not wear sportswear, beachwear. ripped jeans, flip flops, sliders or workout trainers (smarter, fashion trainers may be permitted)."

Posting a picture of her outfit on Insagram, Jess called out the ~ posh ~ resturant for denying her service while dressed in an oversized hoodie, sweatpants and sneakers.

"Dear @sexyfishlondon I turned up to your restaurant looking like this and you looked me and my friend up and down and said no you can’t come in and your restaurant was EMPTY," she began. I then went to @amazonicolondon who greeted me and my friend with pure joy and we had a banging meal with wicked service."

She continued: "@sexyfishlondon please check yourself if this is how you treat people cause it’s rude, off putting, embarrassing and most definitely not inviting."

"We were made to wait and 2 members of staff came to look at us and make a decision based on our appearance."

"I think the attitude of your staff needs to change as that was pure discrimination. Thanks and bye," she concluded.

While some people supported Jess' rant, others felt she misused the word "discrimination" and attempted to correct her.

"A dress code that you chose not to follow isn’t discriminatory. You’re conflating something serious and out of people’s control with something you chose to do," commented British TV host Chanté.

"The restaurant does have a very clear dress policy in place which is also displayed on the website. Rather than shaming them on social media, especially when they are just getting back on their feet, isn’t cool. Maybe try contacting the company or the management team to voice your concern so they can review and improve with how to deal with this situation when it no doubt rises again. The people who were working are just doing their job...they don’t set the policy..." read another comment.
